Thanks Steve! I can finally use the mp4's here. Cranking the bitrate on ffmpeg seems to get me the results I need, but then I'm just trying to gethand picked 200x150 screengrabs, so mileag emay vary for others.

Too bad about these new MP4s. They slow down my NLE interactivity, and play poorly over a network using Media Player, Media Player Classic, MPU, GOMPLAYER, and VLC. The old MPEG2 files work smoothly under the same conditions.

It's possible to use these, but it's unfortunate that a step backward was taken in terms of ease of use. If I transcode these to MPEG2, they work much better, but the transcoded files show cascading compression artifacts.

I will always prefer mpeg2's to be able to burn to dvd. Why can we not archive in full NTSC resolution? 720x480. Pleeeeese!
